Did You Know?


Quarry is depicted as a strong swimmer in various scenes, prompting an unsavory heavy to refer to him sarcastically as "Spitz," a reference to Olympic swimming legend Mark Spitz who was breaking records at the 1972 Summer Olympics (Munich), a time frame in which this plot unfolds. See more »


Quarry: [answering phone in record store] Hello?

What it is ... and what it is not...
18 January 2017 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Properties distributed through Cinemax are a lot like properties that come to us through the Marvel factory .. an interesting but uneven hodge-podge of good ideas cast with fresh new faces for fresh new audiences.

Quarry (the derivation of the title is nicely explained in the opener) takes us on a sharp left turn from earlier Cinemax entries, such as Strike Back and of course the incredible Banshee (possibly the best new TV show in a decade).

So they once again they wisely did not try to compete with what came before, and instead went into an entirely direction.

Quarry at its essence is about a Vietnam vet who has trouble adjusting. It is that simple.

Unlike Strike Back, which gave you a new Mission Impossible each week, and Banshee which gave you an Adrenalin rush each week even with the most simple stories, Quarry comes across as a 1940s Filme Noire shot in muted color tones and starring an actor who could have been Burt Reynold's understudy in the same period when Reynolds was King.

it takes a slightly greater investment of your time to get into the slower-paced, cinema-style exposition. But the investment will pay off. Guaranteed.
